Less than a week since it’s release, the controversial Pombe Bangi video has had over 80,000 views on Youtube. The video showing a group of friends at their worst behavior and having ‘fun’ caused quite a pandemonium across the country, with the majority of Kenyans bashing it for being too explicit.
However, speaking to Mdundo.com, rapper Rajayjay has come out to address the masses and he reckons controversy sells and that was the idea behind Pombe Bangi.
“In this industry we all have to fight for the top spots. It is not a professional like medicine or law where your papers speak for you. So I went for it and controversy is what sells most hence the idea behind the video. The number of views will be my judge. Shall we wait and see?” he said.
On whether the scenes were out of a live scene, he had this to say: “The video was a bit of both reality and on set. In the house the scenes were shot on set and the scenes you see outside were taken randomly; a decision taken by the director”
There you have it, straight from the horse’s mouth.
